I desperately need a planner of some sort. I’ve always been a planner girl – just a plain, simple planner, nothing special. In college I kept medium size soft-cover planners for writing everything in. I definitely didn’t take the time to decorate them or anything – it was just a way to keep myself organized. Since college I haven’t needed to keep a planner because the only things I had to manage were either in my work calendar or they were just social engagements. But now that I have to juggle commissioned design work, scheduling and keeping track of art, art shows, and more, and also ten tons of other projects, all on top of my 9-5, I need something more to keep myself organized.
These days everything has gotten so fancy and beautiful when it comes to stationery! I’m impressed! But a friend made me a midori traveler’s notebook cover, and I’ve been trying to use it as much as possible. Buying a completely separate planner just didn’t feel right, so I decided this morning to whip up some weekly planner pages.
I made them as simple as possible – just boxes for each day of the week, plus a to do list, plus a space for notes. That’s it! I specifically didn’t want lines on mine so I could write as much or little as I wanted, plus be able to put little sketches or doodles in them. I might even turn it into a mini-sketch-a-day page!
I made it so that two templates fit on one 8.5×11 inch page (standard paper size). This way they should fit pretty much anywhere – they fit fine with some trimming in my traveler’s notebook, and I’m really excited to use them.
And since they didn’t take very long, and since it was a fun project, please feel free to download them for your personal use (or give as gifts!). Let me know if it helps you out!
